eric cantor is a lost soul. >> there is no resistance to obama anywhere. and it will get worse even from this point. there is no political impetus. there is no perceived upside for republicans for standing in the way of obama. it is because of who obama is and what his policies are. and the perception that the american people massively support it all. and that is why cantor is saying we're going to have to do a better job of explaining who we are. we need to do a better job of explaining why we are doing what we are doing. that is -- i think -- that epitomizes of how lost they all feel. and right now, folks, there is no fight. there is no desire for any opposition of any kind. >> joy reid, wouldn't you like to live in rush limbaugh's world, where i quote" there is not any resistance to obama anywhere." that is rush limbaugh world. >> he is kind of loveable. he is sad, they should just rename the party the peace, love and puppy's party and have everybody over and have a slumber, it is hilarious to watch the despair on the right. >> there is no opposition if they're not questioning wh

last year, this year, the aftermath was even weirder, as you know, the first lady, michelle obama awarded the best picture oscar, live from the white house, via satellite, and the oscar went to "argo," regarding the canadian embassy in iran, smuggling the diplomats out of tehran, during the hostage crisis in 1979. as you can imagine, iran's state-run media was not at all excited about the best picture comment. as you can see, argo wins oscar in hollywood's dirty anti-iran game. this year they decided they would instead enhance first lady michelle obama. about that, that is not what first lady michelle obama wore last night at the oscars. the image here is kind of tiny, but as you can see, iran's state-run media digitally altered michelle obama's shoulder-bearing gown with the low-cut neck line, and made it look as though she was wearing a sparkly t-shirt. they photo-shopped her into a whole new outfit that she did not wear. the website, "enduring" ran that. i know people love the oscars, i know that watching what iran state tv does to the oscars the day after is always better than
